Thus, the aims of this paper are:
1. To distinguish between the various views on ICT and education stemming from different approaches and portraying different attitudes;
2. To argue for the epistemic possibility of rational discourse among them (or- at least most or some of them);
3. Assuming a possibility of such a discourse, to demarcate the boundaries of the necessary rational discourse within a view which is rarely reflected in practice or in writing - a view based on the combination of the cultural-ideological approaches and the radical attitude (terms to be explained in the first section below).
